The room and the bathroom showed an immense attention to detail and were both artfully decorated. The breakfasts were outstanding. Fresh fruit grown from their own garden, wonderful jams, homemade meusli which I would love to have taken home. If...

This area of Hawkes Bay, Napier and Havelock North has it all! And what a wonderful way to experience by staying with Iris & John at The Loft. They are the best hosts and have created an ambience that is wonderful; from Iris's creative touch with table settings, art and glass collection to John's beautiful art renditions of the local...

We recently stayed for two nights with Iris and John. Their art-filled Loft was the best bed and breakfast experience we have had in New Zealand (and that is really saying something!) I knew we would love it the moment we stepped into their private courtyard filled with interesting vegetation and charming artifacts. Our room was equipped with every possible...

We really enjoyed our few days at Iris and John's lovely home. They were very friendly, welcoming hosts, the breakfasts were absolutely delicious, our bedroom and bathroom were lovely and the garden and views were fabulous. John and Iris gave us lots of good advice on things to do in the area and we thoroughly recommend their B & B.

What a great place to stay. Tasteful decor, impeccable service & hospitality. Such a lovely restful place to stay and savour the delights of this lovely area. Iris & John are welcoming, not intrusive. We don't generally stay in b&b's but the 3 nights here were a delight. Loved sitting on the deck watching the birds in the water features

My wife and I have stayed at numerous bed and breakfasts, but this was tops. Iris and John allowed us into their drop-dead gorgeous home, and in the process, outdid the look by the classic service they provide. There is not a stroke missed at the Loft, from the unbelievable artwork (much of it painted by John himself), to the...

We were so glad we chose The Loft for our night in Havelock North. The location was good, with a great view over the valley. We went for an evening walk around the local roads and the beautiful Keirunga Gardens which was very special with the autumn views. It isn't really walking distance to the town, but is very quiet....
